Swiss Bear Downtown Development Corporation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit was established in 1979 at the downtown’s lowest point, to stimulate and coordinate the revitalization of downtown New Bern and the redevelopment of its waterfront in partnership with the City of New Bern. As a strategy to bring people downtown, Swiss Bear produces MUMFESTnow a city sponsored award-winning event that attracts 85,000 visitors the second full weekend of October. Recent projects include the restoration/relocation of the historic F-11A Tiger jet to Lawson Creek Park and the 29 foot tall Spider Lily sculpture on the Riverwalk. Current projects: acquiring grant funds for the city to implement a Visitor  Wayfinding Sign System to guide visitors into the greater downtown area; working with the city for the revitalization of the Five Points area and producing MUMFEST.
